Noah is still throwing up (I think even more than 2 weeks ago). He just gets himself all worked up gagging and eventually he throws up. It's so frustrating and I have tried everything but hanging him upside down to stop it. He's losing weight which you know drives me completely INSANE! I've spoken to the keto dietitians about what we are going to do to fix this. So at my request we've decided to try a Soy-based formula.
I got to thinking the other day. Noah has ALWAYS thrown up after (before and during) feeds. I've always been a freak and made up for the lost volume by refeeding and refeeding him. Frankly, it's a battle I'm now losing and sick of fighting. We've never really investigated that it could possibly be a lactose intolerance. Hmmmm.....
Guess we'll see.
Seriously, I'm going to kick my own (sorry for the bad word) ass if it is something so simple as an allergy. We've/He's been going through this since day one. Poor guy. Todd is convinced it's lactose. I'm more skeptical but will try anything at this point....well, except surgery (which by the way I did my own experiment (I just couldn't keep a feed down him) and dropped an NG tube a couple of weeks ago and fed him through that and it just made him gag and heave harder to thrown up but he still managed. This makes me think a G tube wouldn't help either)! I may have to actually give my husband some credit if this really works!
